On this Psychotic Saturdays! Saturday I am celebrating the Holidays in horrific fashion. I am highlighting six films that are truly slayerific. They feature the not so jolly old man in glorified slay bell form. Santa has more than a little humbug this season as he slashes his way through the snow and paints the halls with red-blood red! Here are six films that should not be missed out on the holidays. You will notice I forgo the usual slasher flicks that feature a Santa killer-almost and go for some not so over celebrated films.
6. Santa Claws (1996)
Directed by John A. Russo and starring Debbie Rochon, Grant Cramer and John Mowod. A young man finds his divorced mother having sex with a man in a Santa Clause hat and shoots them both dead. Years later, now thinking he is Santa Clause, the man develops an obsession with an erotic horror film star named Raven and begins stalking her.
5. Santa Slays (2005)
Directed by David Steiman and starring Bill Goldberg, Douglas Smith and Emilie de Ravin. Bill Goldberg plays the devil's son who lost a wager with a angel and was forced to spend 1000 years playing Santa, but now the wager of that time has run out, and good old Santa isn't so joyful anymore. He makes up for lost time and starts to kill people.
